Many substances and objects can leave behind unpleasant odours on fur, including cigarette smoke, moth balls and fried foods. Here's how to remove those nasty odours from your fur coat.

Place the fur coat in a vinyl clothes bag and hang it in a wardrobe or cupboard.

Add an open container or bag of fresh filter coffee to the bottom of the clothes bag.

Zip the clothes bag shut so the aroma of fresh coffee grounds permeates the fur coat.

Stir the coffee grounds once each day and check the smell of the fur coat. Remember to zip the clothes bag shut to seal it in with the coffee grounds. Repeat this process until the garment smells like coffee. It should take anywhere from a few days to a week.

Remove the coat from the garment bag when the fur smells like coffee and hang it outside in fresh, dry air for a few hours or until it smells fresh. Returning the coat to the wardrobe or put it in storage.

Repeat these steps if necessary to remove all the odour, using fresh coffee grounds each time.
